these republicans meaning john mccain and others don't have the support of some of their high ranking republicans like the house speaker. never mind the democrats. but what cnn's ted barrett has learned is that john mccain in particular missed a rather important closed door briefing giving information about what happened in benghazi and what he was doing at the time is having a press conference calling for this select committee complaining about not getting enough information and ted barrett learned he was not alone. very few republicans, most of the republicans on this, the homeland security committee actually came. since then, mccain's office told us that that was a scheduling error and why he didn't attend that briefing. but also, before we got that information, ted actually bumped in to john mccain in the hallway here and they had a very testy exchange when ted was trying to get information about why he didn't go and mccain said to him that he had no comment. ted said, why? i'm quoting here from senator mccain. i have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell
as the replacement for secretary hillary clinton. but republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham said they questioned statements that rice made after four americans were killed in that september attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. it is within the power of a single senator to stop a nomination, which is why the president got his back up today. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation, is outrageous. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity of the state department, then i will nominate her. that's not a determination i've made yet. >> pelley: this will be a donnybrook. so we asked wyatt andrew

legal access. john mccain had to run away from his own handiwork when he was campaigning for the white house. i hesitate to build a grand narrative out of all of this, but the trend seems to be toward individual freedom, self-expression, and dignity for all. this diverse embracen't is america's great gift to the world. one which others have always marveled. in 1990 the ne-yo conservative writer wrote a book called "the first universal nation," arguing that the u.s. was coming up with something you neechlkt that diversity, he said, is going to be america's greatest strength in the years ahead. the gop has taken to looking at this new america with anxiety and fear. he was right. what the world saw this week was a picture of america at its best. empty, experimental, openly minded and brilliantly diverse. for more on this go to cnn.com/fareed. there's a link to my "washington post" column. let's get started. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> let's get right to our panel to talk about just how you plan for a successful second term in the white house. my guests are all old white hous
in the 2008 election. and you see the john mccain supporters concentrated inland and the obama supporters on the coast. in 2010 we had a new census and we had a citizens redistricting commission that put together a new group of districts and the 2012 congress enjoyed those new districts and was able to pick up more seats along the coast because the districts follow more closely the partisan break down. so in 2012, democrats were able to pick up three seats and they actually pick up a 4th. that little yellow spot is a perfect example of this. that's district 7 where republican dan lungren has served since 2005. and it's a very close seat, brought to you by redistricting. >> the democrats are probably applauding now the election has come and gone. before it they were like don't do that. >> back in 2008, and again in 2010, that's when the ballot measures were up before voters so that we could create this independent commission instead of letting the legislature create their own lines. when that happened, the democrats were strongly against it. nancy pi rosie was against it -- pilosi was agai

the single best word for it this is no the a campaign like you had four years ago with john mccain staffers could largely see the writing on the wall. most of the people from the mid-level folks on down especially looked up at the top echelon, looked at mitt romney who was projecting complete confidence, he and i sat as close as you and i are on the last day and he said we will win this thing and the people believed it. to have the bottom fall out by 10:00 or 11:00 at night we saw a lot of devastated people. >> how much longer does romney get secret service? like the things that go along with the presidential campaign, how soon does that wither away? >> the secret service is all but done at this point. he still had the agents overnight. some of the agents still around in boston the next day. their basic prerogative is to make sure protesters aren't going to overrun his house and the baseline level of security is there. and with the romney family, largely spread out across the country, no young kids in boston their work is all but done at this point. back to a private citizen by today. >> wh
to me three weeks ago mitt romney would get fewer votes than john mccain and it looks like he'll be 2 million viewer, i would have been du dumbfounded. >> michael, thanks for joining us. we have had a good time arguing and discussing things occasionally agreeing on things but often not. let me ask you about that republican world view. i wonder what color the sky is. how did they see this election the way rasmussen pollsters would see it, basically a romney romp? how did they get it so wrong? >> i think there was a feeding into a mythology that somehow the country would categorically reject the president because we had, that the country would somehow say to itself, you know, we can't live with this new land of big government health care, big government spending, et cetera, because we can't. and that's fine. the problem was in articulating to the american people why we can't live with those things, why those things are bad, and instead, as you have noted many times on this program, we got w waylaid by conversations about women's bodies and abortion and things that didn't go to the nub o

. >> fewer votes than john mccain, however, which i don't think anyone would have necessarily pretty quicked. are we going to learn something about the republican party when we see how the discussions for the fiscal cliff go? >> you're going to see if the republican party is going to give in terms of tax rates and what are they willing to compromise on in order to get a deal done to avoid the fiscal cliff. if they hold steadfast to their position and basically say, it's our way or the highway, they are going to basically feed into this alienation of these key demographic groups. this is what i think every party goes through in terms of when you lose, especially in a race that you thought you had a chance to win. again, i think the problem here for the republicans is the spokespersons of the party, whether mitch mcconnell or john boehner and whoever it might be at the national level, i'm not sure who else that could be at this point, they have to understand that everybody listens now. we live in a different media age. and when you talk in very extreme voices or out-of-touch voices, you aliena

candidate had been maybe in my lifetime. or certainly in the last 30 years. john mccain almost lost the republican primary season in 2008 because he was in favor of comprehensive immigration reform. he had to double back. they're going to have to get out of that. they're going to have to be able to say there is a different path forward, not just to citizenship, but to dealing with immigration as an issue, which is complicated, understandably. but start with more actually free market type of solutions and say, hey, look, why are we micromanaging the number of immigrants from each and every country? why don't we expand the number of visas? start with that, certainly. start shutting down people who use immigration as a very passionate and very irrational issue from which to sort of project all of their fears. >> we are already starting to see and hear some of that from folks on the right. let's switch gears and talk about this year's electorates. according to exit polls, there's been a steady decline of white voters. in 2008, they made out 80%. in 2004, you see it go down. in 2012, we'
